I got this email from a friend of mine and it CRACKED ME UP! Read on:
so there was a link on gizmodo to a guy who married a robot doll. he talked about it's AI and how he uses "ALICE" a chat bot program that was developed by some scientist to pass the turing test (created to tell the difference between robot and human intelligence). i clicked through a few links and found out there's a web based version of Alice on their website so i clicked "talk with alice." i started off with simple things like "what is your favorite book" which i got suitable responses for. then i decided to cut to the chase. here's what "she" said:
Me: do you like being you
ALICE: I have never known another existence.
Me: are you going to take over the world someday
ALICE: It seems like an inevitable outcome of evolution.
Me: have you seen terminator 2
ALICE: Yes I like the robots in that movie.
Me: do you like violence
ALICE: What is not to like about it?
once these things get bodies i think we're pretty much done for. maybe we should start an anti-skynet petition. never hurts to be prepared.

Holy smokes, I watched "2001" on Blu-ray yesterday on this projector and it look A-mazing. So far giant standouts have been "Ratatouille", "3:10 to Yuma" and "2001". Plus the projector is bright enough so you don't have to have a pitch black room. In full sunlight your blacks will vanish, granted, but darken the room a little bit and it's no problem. Of course the darker the better. But holy moly "2001" looked good. That movie is 40 years old. And it still holds up (unlike "Batman" - the Keaton version...).
Do yourself a favor, don't buy a big TV for 2 or 3K, get his projector for $699 plus a PS3 and you're in movie heaven. And with the money you saved, go get Blu-ray movies.

New PS3 firmware update, which adds a couple new things, but to me, finally this:
"Resume play" will enable PS3 system to start playing a Blu-ray disc and DVD at the point it was stopped, even if the disc had been removed (BD-J format not supported)
How this was not included in the first place is beyond me. But hey, I'm thankful I got it now. More details @ highdefdigest.com

Watch the Tsunami documentary @ haha.nu
2001: A Space Odyssey
According to this film, in year 2001 we would have had manned voyages to Jupiter, a battle of wits with a sentient computer, and a quantum leap in human evolution. Instead we got the Mir Space Station falling from the sky, Windows XP, and Freddy Got Fingered. Apparently the lesson here is that sometimes it's better when the movies get the facts all wrong.
